Michael, As a winner of one of the 5 grand prizes (which arrived today) I want to thank you again for promoting and propelling this network!
The arrivial of this roll brought back memories of my first shipments from the mint of Sacagawea dollar rolls. Back in 2000 the mint wrappers had no Mint designation on them. I ordered 3 P's and 3 D's, but found that 5 out of the 6 rolls were tails at both ends! I sent the 5 rolls back and requested rolls with heads at least on one end. They refilled my order of 6 rolls,(Mint error my favor,one free roll) this time only 3 were undeterminable as to mint! They couldn't understand the predicament, if you want to leave the roll unopened.
Michael, now with the date and mint mark on the edges, I have that predicament again. No, I'm not going to return them, but did you happen to notice what mint the individual coins were from? Thanks again!

Hi Michael,
As one of the 5 grand prize winners (which arrived today) thanks again for promoting and propelling this network!
With the date and mint mark on the edges now, and not wanting to open the roll, can you tell me what mint the coins might be from?
(Similar predicament to when the Mint used to send Sacagawea rolls with tails at both ends and no mint designation on the wrapper)
Thanks again,
RSF

RSF,

You are welcome. I'm glad that the contest brought some new members to Coin Network.

The roll came from one of the US Mint's Direct Ship Boxes. The other rolls in the box that I opened were 2009-D, so my guess is that this one is too.
